Business Use-Case

While in the process of combining data during a multi million-dollar merger, the project manager on the task realized that matching and merging two distinct, very large product data sets based on a grouping of attributes was a lot more complex than originally anticipated.

Solution and Benefits

DataMatch Enterprise™ provided a hassle-free solution for the project manager. With the ability to share templates, it saved an enormous amount of time in training users since the templates were already built and ready to use. Matching attributes could be determined quickly based on the identified private product segments. With the templates already configured, users only had to worry about the output. DataMatch Enterprise™ also made cleaning and match definitions easier to manage. With the unique identifiers, Wordsmith libraries and advanced settings, SMEs built the parameters, and users would manually review the data.
